The next big thing???

I checked this right now.

NI and Labview programmers knew about dataflow programming for more than than a decade before this came out on the scene, and it served the same purpose that pipes is going to serve, mainly trying to get non-programmers to use their imaginations and build nifty new applications. The trouble is that if non-programmers wanted to build new applications, they would’nt be non-programmers but programmers in the first place. Just like non-programmers who used Labview became labview programmers in the end, so will non-programmers who use pipes will become “pipes” programmers.And then, engineers will start looking for the next flashy programming interface.
